Re: Conference Realignment

Steve, unlike my fellow 2003 alumni (looking at you Quann and Camby4life), I think you actually have made some very valid arguments for the CUSA. Although I'm of the opinion that it most likely won't matter. The Northeast has shifted even further to a pro sports territory, I'm just not even sure wi...

Re: Casula to Michigan

….UMass needs a seasoned OC who won’t change the dna of the offense too much. I guess time heals all wounds as I don’t recall sitting there watching a finely tuned machine last season on offense featuring TEs, multiple RBs and a well oiled machine of a line😁. I just recall an offense that was in th...

Re: Casula to Michigan

Yesssssss!!! I get it’s Michigan but tight ends coach makes more than OC here? Well, Shane Waldron parlayed being a UMass TE coach into an NFL job, and he hasn’t really looked back since. Casula made 255,000 at UMass. The TE coach at Michigan made 275,000 last year. Michigan is mega big time. They ...

Re: 2024 Season

If Eastern Mich is a win, which it MIGHT be, then we could start the season 3-1 believe it or not. Puma and everybody need to be healthy then we have a chance. In almost every season we play a P5 SEC or ACC or Big 10 team that totally dismantles us and half the team is hurt and the season is toast. ...

Re: 2024 Season

Miss St will not dismantle us. Im not going to predict a win in that one obviously, but i think it is a game for 3 qtrs. Losses to the othr two SEC teams and the remaining 9 are either wins or winnable. I think 6-0 start and finish 8-4 (splitting UConn and Liberty, although we could win both) Put d...

Re: Conference Realignment

bigger things are in the works.... Question….if UMass somehow parlayed its current play into the Big East for all sports, obviously no football, would football independence still be seen as a “bad” thing? I want a football conference for sure. I would be happy to remain Indy a few more years if in ...

Re: Conference Realignment

UCant is a lock for the ACC now. They are #1 AP in mens hoops and #8 in womens hoops. That will leave just us in a year or so as an indy. Yeah we can cobble together the games that UConn will drop (8 or so) but we're in a race against time.

Re: Conference Realignment

Is it me or does the fact we have only 11 games for the fall and 10 for 2025 and 8 for 2026 bother anybody? I don't mean to be the nervous nelly type but 2025 is next year?!? I guess we could schedule Delaware and Kennesaw State but what the fuck!!??

Re: UMass Board of Trustees

Did you get any of the Trustees to email you back? Why on earth do you expect a reply when none was asked in the letter? Go back to post #1 in the thread. Simple stated my wishes and a few reasons for them. While hoping for something sooner, do not expect anything to happen till the Athletic Board ...

Re: Conference Realignment

My impressions from the CUSA and a few private messages from various fans, including Missouri State. They will move, if invited. Missouri State fans have been pining over the SunBelt to the extent they are not a slam dunk with CUSA fans. So what IF Ryan Bamford truly wants a move to CUSA. This I do...

Re: Conference Realignment

Perhaps the guy told me CUSA would not happen and to think 1-3 years for the MAC was right. Don't know if U Albany would be ready for a move to FBS, but would fit well there. Any G5 Conference will do! Get us out of the Atlantic 10 Saints or as someone else put it, Poor Man's Big East! The A10 is d...

Re: Conference Realignment

Since we are only posting opinions here... my opinion is that if UMass doesn't make this happen, Bamford will be gone by his own will. I can't imagine anyone wanting to live that futile existence of trying to improve something with everything that you have only to be stonewalled by the state or som...

Re: Conference Realignment

If UMass was serious about FBS, then Bam and the Chancellor would be trying to get into ANY G5. I would approach C-USA or MAC and go ALL SPORTS. The American conf will have an odd number after adding Army. Approach them ALL sports. I don't understand the constant delaying.
